31. Oakland Raiders

Much like the previously mentioned Jacksonville Jaguars, the Oakland Raiders are going through a ton of change. I saw a graphic on ESPN at one point this offseason that showed how the Raiders had drafted guys ahead of the likes of Larry Fitzgerald, Calvin Johnson, Aaron Rodgers, etc. and that’s pretty much why they had to gut their roster this past year. Oakland let go of a ton of bad cap space this offseason, including quarterback Carson Palmer, who is now with the Arizona Cardinals. With Palmer out, the Raiders have the most unsettled QB situation in the league. Fans are hoping for a breakout year from one of Matt Flynn, Terrelle Pryor, or Tyler Wilson. The Raiders will be contenders for the #1 pick this year, I think.
